Brand new camera from Canon that can do 1080p video footage! This competes with Nikon’s new D90 which has been getting not so great reviews according to the chatter on twitter recently.
Pulizter Prize-winning photographer Vincent Laforet got his hands on a Canon 5D MkII for a weekend. Rather than shoot some quick stills, he rounded up an entire film crew and put them to work using the amazing 1080p video capture it offers – in helicopters, no less! Check out blog post from Don MacAskill, CEO of Smugmug . Also, note on the blog post the Canon PR nightmare where they didn’t want Vincent and Smugmug to post the video and spread the word about how great the camera is. Dear Canon PR, legal, and marketing: If you are reading this I hope in the future you value influencers like Vincent & Don who us amateur photographers look to for advice when buying a new camera.
Cameras I own: Nikon D80, Casio EX-S500, & Flip Mino
